Brave is a free, fast, secure, and cross-platform web browser aimed at user privacy and security. It is a browser where security meets simplicity.
And features customizable shields for ad blocking, fingerprinting prevention, cookie control, HTTPS upgrade, block scripts, per-site settings, and more. It supports security by enabling users to clear browsing data
It comes with a built-in password manager, form autofill, controls content access to the fullscreen presentation, controls site access to autoplay media, and more.
he interesting thing is it is also based on Chromium, i.e. based on the open-source code of Google Chrome.
Brave loads major news sites up to six times faster than Chrome, Safari and Firefox on mobile and desktop. And it enables you to set a default search engine and provides the option to use DuckDuckGo for aprivate window search. It supports modern tabs and windows features (private windows, pinned tabs, auto-unload, drag, and drop, etc.)
The Brave browser supports most of Chrome’s extensions in the chrome web store. Importantly, Brave blocks invasive ads by default, however, if you enable (turn on) Brave Rewards, you can earn tokens (Basic Attention Tokens) for viewing Brave’s privacy-respecting Ads (which are completely private: non of your personal information, browsing history or anything related is shipped out of your machine).
